Hold the line, because today we’re looking back a little over a year ago, when we spent two days full of love (and fun) telling the story of Aman and Sonu and celebrating as they became husband and wife at the Estancia La Jolla.
Aman and Sonu’s love story all began over a good, old-fashioned telephone conversation, which inspired our concept for their wedding! This darling duo chatted on the phone for three months before finally meeting in person. It only took two dates for them to realize the connection that they had made was meant to last forever. We paid homage to our couple’s beginning by asking guests to drop them a line at the sign in table prior to the ceremony. Infusing our couple’s Indian culture, we created a bright and fun color palette, mixed with hues of magenta, peach, teal and green and dashes of gold. Oak and the Owl adorned their ceremony with lush, vibrant blooms. Clusters of peonies, dahlias and garden roses were suspended from the mandap as guests lounged on beautifully-woven rugs from Casa de Perrin and pillows in lieu of traditional seating.
Following the ceremony, guests were greeted with a colorful retro phone wall we created with the help of Back Up Backdrops, that served as an old fashioned directory and helped guests find their table numbers with tags by Peanut Press Creative. At their tables, laser cut wood phones served as table markers, complete with phone numbers that were chosen from one of the careers of the guests at the table, and were named such things as “the pharmacist”, “the doctor”, “the lawyer”, “the dentist”, etc.
The night was additionally an ode to Aman and Sonu’s sweet tooth, beginning with guests sipping on Yummy Gummy cocktails garnished with gummy bears. Each place setting was finished with delicate pink plates and vintage champagne coupes topped with candy kabobs. We built our couple their very own retro bakery named “The Hungry Hungry Hippo” – A fun way to bring in our bride’s favorite animal! Bakery display cases held a variety of delicious cakes from Extraordinary Desserts, and we encouraged guests to come to the counter and place a request for their order. Guests danced the night away and celebrated the sweetness that these two had found all because one decided to dial up the other!
